Nick Senior, Subaru Australia Managing Director, said: “The additional 50 mm of ground clearance gives Liberty X sedan a total ground clearance of 200 mm.”

“This makes it ideal for rural and regional areas, but also for those who need extra clearance in negotiating driveways.”

“The ease of entry and exit of our SUVs has always been a key selling point and we have now been able to incorporate this into a sedan, for those who prefer that body style.”

The remaining versions of the MY13 Liberty line-up will be revealed in the last quarter of 2012.

NOTE: * Manufacturer's List Price (MLP) excludes dealer delivery fees and the numerous statutory charges (commonly known as on-road costs). Additionally, please note that all prices, fees and charges are subject to change without notice, as are the specifications.
